I'm not sure if I'm in the right forum so if I'm not then I apologize.This has just been kind of a dream of mine and after talking to a few guys who have done it, I think I'm gonna go for it. I'm from Kansas but I'm living in Washington right now and I am a very avid fly fisherman. I'm 19 and in college right now so I could only work from the middle of May till the end of August but from what I was told, a lot of lodges hire guides just for the summer. The man I talked to said that getting a job wouldn't be too hard if I go through a guide school or something like that, and if I decide to do this I would definitely go through a guide school. I'm a pretty good fly fisherman and I believe that I'm skilled enough but I would obviously need some experience in the area and time to get things figured out. So, with all that out of the way, I just wanted to ask some of you guys about guiding in Alaska. How hard is it to get a job and could I do it during the summer? And what should I do to prepare if I plan on going? And what can I expect or what should I know about Alaska before I go? I just want some basic information like that if anyone can help me out. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
